Quick question: How do reporters hold officials accountable on Monday when they are getting their makeup done together on Saturday?
Below is Deputy State Department Spokeswoman Marie Harf and NPR State Department reporter Michele Keleman at the Chanel counter getting ready for the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

Just a girly outing. Adorable, isn’t it?
Sample conversation after the weekend: ‘I’d like to know what exactly Sec. Kerry is doing to push Russia back … and what was the color of that lipstick the Chanel girl said I should get?’
